Sport Spanish TV reporter goes viral for ‘dramatic’ criticism of Eden Hazard
'Illogical and absurd' - Zidane responds to talk of Real Madrid being kicked out of Champions League
The Blancos boss expects his side to face Chelsea in the semi-finals and has also offered a positive update on Eden Hazard's fitnessThe Blancos, led by club president Florentino Perez, figured prominently in plans to form a breakaway competition that left the rest of European and world football up in arms.
secured their place in the final on Wednesday night after defeating 2-0 at and winning the tie 3-1 overall on aggregate.
It was a dominant display by Chelsea and thoroughly deserved however the scenes of celebration by the young squad at the end of the game were almost overshadowed after Madrid’s Hazard, a legend during his time with Chelsea, appeared to join in the festivities too.
Although it was controversial to see a player from an opposing team celebrate with the other side, Hazard’s links to the west London club are pretty strong so maybe he could be forgiven for being just a tad happy for them.
Can we see a little Eden Hazard magic again?
A flop? A flake? Eden Hazard now has the perfect stage to prove he is not a Madrid waste of money.Hazard won the Premier League twice with Chelsea before departing, Europa League trophy in hand, with the well wishes of most at the club. A £100m-plus fee helped. Talk of a move to Madrid had dominated the press all season and his post-match comments let the cat out of the bag; it looked like the end of one chapter and the start of a tantalising new one.
It sparked a flurry of memes in the process.
Eden Hazard couldn't help but be happy for his former club ????

Perhaps Hazard thought his happiness for his old colleagues would have gone unnoticed back in Spain but that definitely isn’t the case.
'Eden Hazard has never been a top pro, he's never had the drive of Messi & Ronaldo'
Hazard's career has seriously declined since joining Real Madrid in 2019The Belgian forward joined the club in the summer of 2019 after a stunning final season with Chelsea.
According to, the images of the Belgian celebrating have caused “monumental” anger at Real Madrid which was clear to see on the football show El Chiringuito where the host delivered a very dramatic take on the events.

Hazard returns to Stamford Bridge tonight for first time since move
Hazard started at the weekend and showed flashes of his brilliant former self. So, is the Belgian returning at just the right time for Madrid, to knock-out the club which once loved him? © Provided by Daily Mail ( © Provided by Daily Mail ( EDEN HAZARD AT CHELSEA Games: 352Goals: 110Assists: 92Trophies: Premier League (2014-15, 2016-17), FA Cup (2017-18), EFL Cup (2014-15), Europa League (2012-13, 2018-19) The 30-year-old had the best moments of his career at Stamford Bridge, progressing from one of Europe's brightest young talents upon signing from Lille in 2012 to a £143m player seven years later.
Pederol did not hold back stating: “Real Madrid are out of Europe as Hazard finds time to laugh and joke. Two years of taking the piss out of Real Madrid supporters, two years of being overweight, just another Gareth Bale. We are angry, we don’t understand him. He cannot stay at Real Madrid for another second.”
???????? "¡¡HAZARD NO puede SEGUIR ni un SEGUNDO MÁS en el R. MADRID!!" ????????
???? ¡— El Chiringuito TV (@elchiringuitotv) , más ENFADADO que NUNCA en ! ????
To make his anger even more potent, Pederol was backed by some rather dramatic lighting and foreboding music that made it look more like an episode of Mastermind than an analysis of a football match.
Onlookers couldn’t help but be amused.
Sure that post-match Hazard image won’t be a big deal in Madr ... ah— James Dart (@James_Dart)

Football eh ... funny old game.
